Ruby Baby
Ah now, said I love a girl and-a Ruby is her name
This girl don't love me but I love 'er just the same
(Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Ruby, Ruby, I'm-a want ya
Like a ghost I'm-a gonna haunt ya
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby will you be mine, sometime

Ah each time I see you, baby, my heart cries
I tell ya I'm gonna steal you away from all those guys
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, from the happy day I met ya
Now I made a bet that I was goin' to get ya
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby will you be mine

("Hey-hey " overlaid with "Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby"
"Hey-hey " overlaid with "Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby"
"Hey-hey " overlaid with "Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby"
"Hey-hey " overlaid with "Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby"

("Hey-hey " interspersed with "Oh, oh, oh, oh"
"Hey-hey" overlaid with "Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby")

Well, I tell ya

Now I love this girl, I said-a Ruby is her name
When this girl looks at me, she just sets my soul aflame
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, I got some hugs and-a kisses, too
Yeah, and now I'm gonna give-a them all to you
Now, listen now, Ruby, Ruby, when will you be mine

("Hey-hey " overlaid with "Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby"
"Hey-hey " overlaid with "Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby"
"Hey-hey " overlaid with "Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby"
"Hey-hey " overlaid with "Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, baby"
"Hey-hey " overlaid with "oh, oh, oh, oh")

Ah listen, listen, listen, now
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby will you be mine

(Fades)
